      What are the entry requirements to be a certified gym instructor?

      To work as an industry recognised and certified gym instructor you need to complete a level 2 fitness instructor course. Once this is complete and you receive your certification you are able to apply for fitness jobs working in a gym based role.

      Are AOFP gym instructor courses recognised?

      Yes absolutely! Our fitness instructor courses are fully recognised at level 2. They are also awarding body accredited by Focus Awards at level 2, so you are in good hands.

      How is the course assessed?

      Our fitness instructor qualifications involve a combination of theory and practical assessment. The theory part is evidenced by completing workbooks which contain short answer questions and case studies. You then move onto the practical which is evidenced by attending a one day workshop via our practical attendance pathway, or by submitting a video, if you opt for our online course pathway.

      Does the course include exams?

      There are no exams but you do need to complete your course portfilo. This is made up of theory and practical evidence. See ‘How is the course assessed’ for details.

      What's the best way to become a gym instructor?

      Here at AOFP we believe the best way to complete your fitness instructor training is by developing your theory and practical work based knowledge. Every day is different on the gym floor and one of the best bits of the job is being able to apply your course learning to help gym members achieve their varied goals and commit to their training plans.

      Can I qualify as a gym instructor online?

      Yes absolutely! We encourage our students to learn in the way that suits them best and our online pathway enables you to qualify as a fitness instructor online.

      What are the level 2 fitness course industry requirements?

      The industry requires you to gain a level 2 fitness instructor qualification that is recognised by CIMSPA and accredited to an independent awarding body, such as Focus Awards who work with us here at the Academy of Fitness Professionals.
